The complete broadcast solution will allow Meredith to establish a centralized, file-based broadcast structure for its entire eastern U.S. operation. The Atlanta operation supports a minimum of 12 HD streams. It features NEXIO AMP media platforms, Predator II multiviewers, Platinum and Panacea routers, ADC automation, CCS Navigator control and monitoring for all six stations, and IconMaster master control switchers and branding equipment.
The first three hub locations will go online by the end of 2009, with the final three stations following through mid-2010. Meredith also plans to scale the Harris solution in its Phoenix hub, adding redundant NEXIO servers and CCS Navigator centralized monitoring among other new components.
